We were recently asked to create a bespoke engagement ring set with both Sapphires and Diamonds in a simple yet classic design for a customer. In recent years update `wp_posts` set `post_content` = mainly since Kate Middleton received her Sapphire and Diamond engagement ring from Prince William) Sapphires have become a popular choice for engagement rings, especially mixed with diamonds. The combination of a deep blue sapphire and a clear white diamond creates an elegant, timeless piece of jewellery. The customer decided on a three stone ring featuring a large oval-shaped Sapphire set in platinum. With this in mind we created a 4-claw platinum setting to hold the oval-shaped Sapphire with claw settings either side to hold two pear-shaped diamonds. The diamonds and Sapphires are also mounted on a Wedfit band, enabling the ring to fit flush against standard wedding rings with no gaps in-between giving the engagement ring a co-ordinated exclusive look.
The Mount Before the Diamonds and Sapphire Was Set
Sapphire gem stones are blue sisters of rubies! Both stones are a mineral of corundum and the second hardest gemstone after diamonds. Sapphires can be found in a wide range of colours, but blue is a classic colour. The intensity of the blue colour is the most important aspect when determining its value.
The Finished Sapphire & Diamond Engagement Ring
The finished engagement ring is set with a 2.22ct oval-shaped Sapphire held in a 4-claw platinum setting. The pear-shaped diamonds are set either side of the Sapphire and total 0.63cts.
